modern flower child wedding

From Mylyn Wood Photography “It all started with a dress. THE dress. This amazing 1960’s vintage jumpsuit with sheer skirt lining. One look at this beauty and I just couldn’t turn off my brain. The 60’s was an era of legend: the big hair and mod patterns were unsurpassable. For today’s bride it may be a little much so I wanted to illustrate it’s funk and style with a clean but upbeat twist.”

From Mylyn Wood Photography – “The brides look was very versatile. The pantsuit is on the rise but I wanted to make sure it had funk AND softness to round it out. We found an amazing shaggy sheath from Free People that played perfectly to the 60’s grunge movement while still staying prim and proper for a wedding. Add some vintage velvet pumps and the look rounded itself wonderfully.

We took a different approach to the grooms attire. The groom’s style often gets overlooked but The Natty Dresser is doing their part to change that. They have such unique yet classic styles and Oscar Hult is definitely the stylist you want on your side to make sure you look perfect! I’m convinced that if James Bond were real (and a groom) he would shop here. We went with a rich navy suit with a sleek skinny tie, a fun paisley print shirt and a touch of luxury in the amber cuff links.”

From Mylyn Wood Photography – “The rings were some of my favorite pieces in the collection. The flower child revolution was all about world peace and togetherness. I was able to find pieces that mimicked the peace symbol without being too obvious – the perfect blend of boho and bling!

With many couples becoming more and more established before tying the knot we thought it’d be a great nod to the hippie era to push donations in lieu of wedding gifts. What better way to spread world peace than to give to others in need? We wanted to pair a unique wedding favor with it and decided to stay on the theme of giving by filling the sweetest glass bottles with bird seed to spread a little sunshine.

The vineyard proved to be the perfect location for a wedding such as this. It’s proper enough for any upper west side princess and relaxed enough for any free-spirited souls. Who can say no to a venue with wine on tap? Its sweeping views and rustic charm gave an elegant, open and natural space for the entire event. I couldn’t get enough of this location and style!”
